Out of every crazy little thing I've tried to cook or bake I've never made the basic meat and potatoes. After a morning of babysitting I headed to the store with every intent of buying a chuck roast. When my oldest sister makes meat and potatoes in the crock pot it's amazing! Her meat shreds and you can put it on rolls to have as sandwiches. Somehow when I left the store I must have bought a rump roast. Which does not shred. I didn't realize it was the wrong roast until everything was done cooking.
When I got home I put the roast in the crock pot with a couple cups of water, carrots, potatoes, celery and seasoning.
